EY_151215_6328About the GIFT Workshop

Geophysical Information for Teachers (GIFT) Workshops allow science teachers to hear about the latest geoscience research from the scientists making the discoveries, explore new classroom resources for their students, and visit exhibits and technical sessions of the AGU meeting for free. AGU collaborates with the National Earth Science Teachers’ Association (NESTA) to run GIFT workshops at Fall Meeting. The materials from GIFT 2016 are available here. These include presentations, classroom activities, and other resources. Check out our LEARN videos, which depict the hands-on activities from the workshop. Please e-mail with questions.

Dr. Michael Wysession, a writing team leader for the Next Generation Science Standards, shares his knowledge and enthusiasm with educators at the 2013 GIFT Workshop.
